In case you did not know where Presiding Bishop Hanson stood...
LCNA (Lutherans Concerned of North America) is the GLABT organization that has pushed ELCA parishes to be open to gays (RIC) and helped to maneuver the stunning adoption of the GLABT agenda at the ELCA Churchwide Assembly a couple of years ago. At the time, it was known that Bishop Emeritas was strongly in favor of the change and it was greatly suspected that Hanson was more than in the middle. Now that the ELCA has passed all the GLABT agenda, Hanson can "come out" (so to speak) and formally support this organization and its agenda.
LCNA has announced that Presiding Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America,
Mark S. Hanson will deliver the keynote address to the assembly,
following the opening worship on Saturday, July 7, 2012. This is the
first time a presiding bishop of any denomination has delivered the
keynote address at our assembly.
The primary purpose of LCNA is to call the entire church to be a visible proponent of justice for all gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.
